We wish all students long days of exploration, fun, sunshine and adventure during these summer months ahead. Please refer to the links below for a selection of optional, enriching summer reading resources for all Crusaders, as well as required reading assignments for incoming 5th-8th graders. In particular, we invite you to review the link below regarding our Reading Without Walls Summer Reading program. Students who complete our summer reading bingo board will be treated to a Summer Reading picnic in September. Students who complete each and every item on the board will win a dress down day! Incoming K-8 students who complete a summer reading club through their public library are invited to bring in their certificates of completion at the start of school and are also invited to take part in our September picnic.
